LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Greater Lafayette residents are sharing their New Year's resolutions as we wave goodbye to 2020. As they do, they're reflecting on a year that was difficult for everyone.
But they're finding some good along the way. Local resident Adam Vanderwiesen shared his 2020 experience.
"It's hard to be happy about 2020 so much sadness has happened, but it's been nice to get closer with family," Vanderwiesen said.
"I've got a bunch of kids and we had more quality time, and more qualiy time with my wife."
His resolution is more of 12 resolutions. He's taking it month by month.
"That way if I mess up in January I don't give up," Vanderwiesen said.
Preschool teacher Keitha Johnson wants to give back to her students.
"My resolution is just to be a more powerful teacher," Johnson said.
And college student Matthew Le wants to start the next chapter in his life.
"I want to get my degree on time, I just want to make my parents proud of me. I just want to move out and stop living off them," Le said.
"I want to make something of myself."
And when asked if 2021 was going to be his year:
"Man, if it's not 2021 it will have to be 2022. But yeah, I think 2021 will do it," Le said.
